I have often wished to tell how grateful I am for Christian Science, and for the many blessings it has brought into my life. It came to me at a time of great mental depression, adverse circumstances, loss of dear friends, and months of ill health, wherein I could see life only as a burden. About this time a kind friend sent me as a Christmas gift, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I was then suffering from a severe attack of peritonitis and was too weak even to hold the book in my hands. I had heard of Christian Science, but thought it of no practical use to me; however, if I got better I would read the book for the giver's sake. I improved slowly and began the study of the book, and in it I found a medicine that heals all sorrow, sickness, and sin. A bright star of hope appeared, lighting up the dim future and leading me to the ever-present Christ. It has given me a sure trust in God, comfort in sorrow, health and strength to work and to help others. There have been dark days, opposition and prejudice to overcome, but through all these things I never doubted the saving and healing power of Christ, Truth, as revealed in Science and Health. The little star still shines on as a beacon light, leading unto the perfect day. There is still much to overcome, but I can say with Paul, "He which hath begun a good work ... will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."

I was deeply impressed by a testimony that appeared in the Sentinel, August 20, 1904, the healing of a tiny baby, also the letter written by the father of the child. The testimony brought to me a feeling of great joy and thankfulness; joy to know that infinite Love is reaching us here and now, supplying all human needs, releasing the sin-laden from bondage, giving hope and comfort to the sorrowful, health and rest to the weak and weary. May God bless all the workers who are sowing the good seed. May He water the soil with the dew of divine Love and give them fruits an hundred-fold. I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for the Christian Science literature. The Lesson-Sermons are a continual feast. For all these blessings I give God thanks, and the greatest blessing of all is the victory over self.—E. Hobbs, London, England.
